USA campaigns in high gear three days before congressional elections

On Monday, Trump announced the deployment of thousands of active-duty troops to the Southwest border.

Obama was flanked by gubernatorial candidate Andrew Gillum, who faces former congressman and strong Trump backer Ron DeSantis, and Senator Bill Nelson, who is being challenged by the outgoing governor, Rick Scott. And on Thursday, Trump called for new limits on asylum claims.

USA congressional candidates hammered into the campaign homestretch on Saturday, with Democratic former vice president Joe Biden urging voters to reject division as President Donald Trump touted economic growth after sounding dire warnings on immigration. Republicans now fear some of their voters are losing enthusiasm a week away from midterm elections that will determine control of Congress. The Democrats need to make a net gain of two seats in order to take control of the Senate, but the field isn't very wide for them; they're already the incumbents in three-quarters of the seats at stake. Some Democrats are looking at using the House Ways and Means Committee to obtain copies of the president's tax returns after he broke with decades of tradition and withheld them from public scrutiny during his campaign for the White House. "Usually it's a relatively bipartisan issue, but it could be impacted by who wins the gubernatorial races in particular", said Capri Cafaro, executive in residence at American University's School of Public Affairs and a former state senate Democrat in OH, another signatory.

"While President Obama's approval ratings are not great in much of the state, you can pretty safely bring into Chicago media market", said Republican consultant Cam Savage. And aides from both parties say a continued standoff over immigration is likely to lead to a partial government shutdown at the end of the year.

"It's a turnout game", said Rep. Mark Amodei, a Republican whose 2nd District in northern Nevada is the safest red one in the state.

McSally's Democratic opponent is Kyrsten Sinema, 42, a three-term member of the House of Representatives who spent several years of her childhood in poverty after her parents divorced.
